    • Diane and I were classmates at Waldorf College and I will always remember her beautiful high soprano voice. Diane sang a solo within the concert choir about a rose being touched by the sun’s warm rays. Odvin Hagen, our director, would always be in bliss hearing her sing. I’m sorry for your loss. I am a sister of Conrad Johnstad. All the Haugens were great singers. Hattie was a fantastic pie baker as well. God bless Diane’s memory. She was a wonderful, kind person.
